Listen to a tribute to legendary NYC party The Loft





Step straight onto its iconic dance floor.

Colleen Murphy has paid tribute to The Loft in honour of its 52nd anniversary, in her latest Worldwide FM show.

Over half a century ago, David Mancuso founded The Loft in a large commercial warehouse space at 647 Broadway in downtown New York City.

From this singular party, and its creator David Mancuso, comes much of the inspiration for virtually every aspect of club and music culture the world knows today.

Across two hours, “through requests and stories from the worldwide Loft Family Colleen conjures the spirit of these legendary events,” shares wwfm.
